On 17 March 2017 Märklin started to build the new company museum märklineum with a formal ground-breaking ceremony. At the moment, still a lot of work is going on at the new märklineum. The work is proceeding bit by bit. Meanwhile, the new shop has already opened. As of 30 July 2018, you find the Märklin Store and the treasure trove in Reuschstraße 6, directly next to the main factory. Here you can already see some recent pictures.
On a total area of about 3,000 square metres there will be an impressive model railway layout and a theme park for collectors and families from all around the world. There will also be playing sensations for children, too.
After the reconstruction, the historic Märklin exhibits can be found on the second and third floor in the section of the company building built in 1956 which is located in parallel to the Stuttgarter Straße. Between the ground floor and the first floor a ceiling must be removed in order to gain space for the large miniature world in the scale of 1:87. In this room featuring an area of over 300 square metres, an impressive layout will come to life in several construction stages that extend the opening of the museum.
